Saturday will be about History and Art. We will look back at John Ruskin, one of the founders of the Arts & Crafts movement, and how his theories of architecture effected both the past and present. We have a presentation on Gustav Stickley, the connections between Hubbard, Darwin Martin and Frank Lloyd Wright, and the importance of Buffalo at the beginning of the automobile age. Sunday will focus on the Home and Health, with presentations on interior and garden design, and the comforts of an Arts & Crafts Bungalow.

The Roycroft Arts & Crafts conference is being held in correlation with East Aurora's "well-Crafted Weekend" with activities planned throughout the village. The theme of "Well-Crafted" is a key aspect of the Roycrofters artwork, as well as their philosophy on how to live a quality life. A highlight of the conference will be demonstrations from current Roycroft Rennaisance Artisans in a variety of media. We will also partake in an Oktoberfest,history, film, art and a tour of homes and enjoy all aspects of a "Well-Crafted" life.
